Captain Fitzroy’s Journal
Easterly winds swept us along a smooth sea for many days, after leaving Otaheite. At daylight on the 3d of December we saw Whylootacke (or Wailutaki) a small group of islets encircled by a coral reef, from four to eight miles in diameter. The principal one is 360 feet high, and nearly four miles long. There was a native missionary upon it, educated at Otaheite.
